I gallumplied upstairs top speed to show her the guest room which still contained my double bed hut which 1 was now glad—nay, eager —to give up to her and Mickey Breathless, 1 promised them all the clean linen they wanted, the se of the whole house, my white satin, lace inonogramincd blanket cover, a bedside radio, $5000, and the dnigslore—if they'd just move in and stay. Mickey came that evening to look us over. He was as freckled as Claudia was (air, as gangling as she was svelte, as faded and wiry haired as she was silky and glowing, and as quiet and unresponsive pare dinner for Mickey In my silchcn if she wished. She wished. And lo my astonishment, she invited Itobhie and me to have dinner wilh her and Mickey In our house the following night: they'; had a gill of a fro/en roast of venison and they'd like to sliure it with ufi. Leaning on my elbows, lull of good food, 1 remarked, "You chil dren like home life, don't you?" • "Oh. yes," Cluudia gurgled. "W love it." "It's loo bad we're so much old r or we might run a comtnunii tchen," 1 said. "You're not much older," Micky Lied stoully. "Anyone'd Lake on for my sister." "And we wish you would let us ivc here with you," Claudia added ifiseechinKly. A.s she was ebullient.

Directing her attention to me with a toils of his unruly hair, he added, "Fix it up." As 1 set the dining-room table for dinner the next evening, heard hands squeaking on the ban nister as Bill's used to do when li gripped it hard on an unwillin ascent to bed. Looking out, 1 saw Mickey moving slowly down an toward the front door on his wa out with Claudia to have dinner "That boy didn't want to go OT lo eat," I told Roger and Hob a I served them. That's his tough luck," Roger snld. Roger or 110 Roger, next morn ing I told Claudia that we were not going to be home for dinner that night and that she could get in lamb chops, new potatoes, and J frozen peas—or whatever she | liked, for that matter—and pre- 7OGI-JR was out; we could talk freely. We arranged to take urns doing the housekeeping; Claudia had got dinner that night; omorrow I would. We'd halve he bills at the end erf the month, arid either side could have company on Us night to cook. We worked this arrangement for the IB months the children lived with us, and thonch Claudia was a better cook than I, she continually flattered me hj taking down notes my recipes. Of course, dropped our soiled clothes dowi Ihe same chute, washed them it the same tubs and ironed them U| on the same mangle. Claudia be longed to our denomination fc we attended church together. Roger was the livid one. For few days after our new arrange ment went into effect, he came hopefully home in time for dinner just as usual; but gradually, un able to fit inlo the family circle and possibly » little in awe of Mickey—H was difficult for a captain in Headquarters Company to tellingly lord it over « man who had flown the shuttle in Europe and was now headed [or the South we had Hetty and Dick and ttieit baby (still had) in the basement; then Ihe Capncrs and the two boys upstairs. What was the mallei his family? Mary and the boys were as homeless as Wandering Jews, just visiting <wi* parent anrt then the ,other, and Mary was getting pretty darn tired o( it. I almost had to pinch myself to remind myself 1 wasn't cheating him. Eventually Colonel HarlwIcKt solved the problem for us. Thinking too many GI'« attached to bases in this country didn't appreciate what war was about or like, he ordered all men under his command »t Gore Field to move into barrncka and observe front- ne discipline. Claudia and Mickey had been ving wilh u« for some months when a Big Event occurred. It vasn't the little girl they expected, lit a little boy and her name was like. It h;w never failed to Impress me that the toughest-looking men so often have Ihc tcnderest hearts. Mickey took his turn getting up nights with Mike, just the same as Claudia did. "You have lo wait on him aH day," he explained. }ne evening when they wheeled lim mtt in his carriage, Claudia told me they agreed Mickey should }ush going and she returning, but when it came round to her turn, he wouldn't give over. "I almost never get to him," Mickey complained, clung tightly to the carriage han- "Thess beautiful Mny days don't npponl'to me as much ns they tlid once—can't [ilay liooky from anything!"
